In Rejection Sucks: 40 Days To Making It Suck Less, Dr. Jennifer Johnson addresses the issues of rejection, co-dependency, bitterness, self-deprecation and more, while offering answers and hope. Dr. Johnson draws examples from her own life, as well as from fictional, historical and Biblical figures. Each of the forty days begins with a quote, then addresses some issue (such as mentioned earlier), and finally signs off with a summarizing thought for the day. The style is easy to read and the layout is very organized. The last few pages contain a variety of positive Scripture verses to meditate on and/or declare over oneself.

I really enjoyed reading Dr. Jennifer Johnson’s book, Rejection Sucks: 40 Days To Making It Suck Less. The essays were short (easy for a quick morning read), yet deeply packed with positive quotations, Scriptures, and truth. I felt like Jennifer was cheering me on and giving me helpful tools, but she was also not afraid to pull some punches and state hard but necessary truths. I found her style refreshing, and already have a couple people in mind who would enjoy this work. Rejection Sucks helped sow seeds of change in my mind and heart regarding how I view myself and how I deal with other people (especially negative people and their words, actions, and attitudes toward me). This is one of those books that I finished and immediately wanted to read again. (It also makes me want to check out Dr. Johnson’s other writings.) Grab a copy and prepare to be inspired and re-wired.
